The moment when Samuel Seo’s ego expands. ‘EGO EXPAND (100%)’, Samuel Seo’s second full-length album has come out today, May 27, as well as the music video for ‘B L U E’, one of the album’s two title tracks.

The name ‘Samuel Seo‘ had been mentioned by only a minority of Korean hiphop fans, but with the release of his first full-length album ‘FRAMEWORKS‘ in 2015, he made his name more widely known. The value of that album that had not one featuring was increased at the Korean Music Awards 2016 as it won the award for the best R&B/Soul Album.
This second album ‘EGO EXPAND (100%)‘ is coming out only about seven months after ‘FRAMEWORKS’. To keep up with the fast-consuming music market these days, musicians tend to release singles and mini albums to stay afloat, but Samuel Seo has made another full-length album in which he talks about the expansion of his ego.
Upon returning from his travels to Texas in March where he had planned the album, Samuel Seo finished all of the album’s songs in just one month. Overall, he tells about the process of getting rid of uncertain thoughts and a weak ego and becoming a person with a strong ego.
Unlike his first full-length album, this one includes several featuring artists: Jung-in, Giriboy, Nucksal, Ja Mezz, and KimOki. They each worked closely with Samuel Seo to realize the respective song’s content and idea in the best way possible.
Starting with ‘Ego Death’, in which the ego is erased, until ‘Ego Expand (100%), the moment in which the ego expands by 100%, the track order gradually describes the expansion of Samuel Seo’s ego.

While the online release was May 27, the album will also be released offline on June 3.
